RIB IT: It's 11/11, "the date which most resembles corduroy," and you know what that means: Time for the 5th Annual 11/11 Grand Meeting of the Corduroy Appreciation Club, that ultraniche, wildly preppy and ultimately delightful and tender-hearted gathering of those in love with the cloth of kings. A short film about corduroy and the unveiling of a beer that resembles corduroy are just two of the surprises on tonight's bill--expect special guests, too. And just imagine how crazy they'll go on 11/11/11. At the General Society for Tradesmen and Mechanics Library (44th nr. 5th). 7:30PM.
TRACING FUNNY: National Lampoon may be the single most influential comedy publication in history: The magazine spawned radio and stage offshoots, which in turn were responsible for notable careers (such as that of writer-director John Hughes or Bill Murray), cultural icons (Animal House, Saturday Night Live), and opening the door to a new kind of humor. Hear about the history and influence as a host of contributors—including Lampoon editor Michael Reiss--discuss the magazine’s cultural footprint at Drunk, Stoned, Brilliant, Dead: A Tribute to National Lampoon, 92 Street Y, 8:15PM.
